President Carter discharged from hospital; heads back to build houses

Habitat for Humanity CEO Jonathan Reckford said in a statement Thursday that Carter grew dehydrated after "working in the hot sun".

Former US president Jimmy Carter has returned to his volunteer work, a day after he was taken to hospital for dehydration while working with an organisation building homes for needy families.

Former first lady Rosalyn Carter accompanied him on the humanitarian trip and was alongside him when he was taken to a Winnipeg hospital for rehydration.

The Carter Center also said the pair attended the morning devotional Friday that kicks off the last day of the project.

Habitat for Humanity, which has had a long association with the Carters, is constructing 150 homes this year for people in need in Canada to celebrate the country's 150th anniversary.

Djokovic needed three set points to finally put the Frenchman away in the first set, though, eventually claiming it 6-2. Speaking after the match, the second seed said: "It's something I've been dragging back and forth for a while now".

"He and Mrs. Carter extend their appreciation for the many well-wishes he received worldwide", the center said.

Through his work on global issues, he is regarded as a better former president than he was a president, having left office profoundly unpopular. "He encourages everyone to stay hydrated and keep building", a statement from the Carter Center said.

That's where 21 homes are being built by Habitat at the site of the Winnipeg Police Service's former St. James district station.

Carter announced in 2015 that he was free of a type of melanoma that spread across his brain.

The 92-year-old was in Canada helping build a Habitat for Humanity home when he "collapsed", a volunteer told CBC News, triggering a rush of paramedics and firefighters to assist him.
